Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am still new to the whole genealogy thing. I have only been doing for about 15 years. I am hoping that my children will continue the search.

**If I posted a picture for a photo request, Please check the Caption on the photograph for more information. Especially if, there is a general lot shot.

My Paternal Great Grand father and Mother came from Scotland (but met in Illinois) and my Maternal Family is from Connecticut from the 1652ish. I am in the St. Louis, MO area.

I am working on the Stewart, Robertson, Sage and English Families currently.

Photography is relaxing for I take photos and add them. There is cemetery that I am working on that across the street from my children's school. If you want one of my photos, that is fine, but I DO WANT CREDIT. I however would prefer that they are not added to Ancestry. It is more that you might credit me, but the person that acquires it from you might not.

PLEASE -Turn on your messages. You are missing out on A LOT of info that people may want to share with you.

Please remember, when you start researching a new geographic area, that those living in the area, probably know more than you, but there are some that don't. Like St. Louis City and St. Louis County are very separate, but very connected. Please look at an actual map that has city and county boarders, that is dated for that era, NOT a current map. For example, much of what is warehouses now by river, used to be housing.

Thank you.

St. Louis Calvary Cemetery
Myself and several others, including Elaine, Sharon and Mr Tom, do most of the Photo requests for the St. Louis Calvary Cemetery. We share a google document to do this. I typically look at every request. Which means - I will check to see if is duplicate, see if they are really buried their (see the archdiocese website) and then enter it onto the spreadsheet. Most, but not all ,have already been added into Find a grave by TVFTH. BTW, they are terrible spellers, so be creative. Which is sorted usually by sections. Sections 5 & 16 do not have maps, so those have to be walked, but they were VERY sparsely marked. Section 10 is done, there are only maybe 20 stones. Then we each have our favorite sections to do. It is a Very large cemetery, so we do sometime wait until there are more than one request in that section.

If you have any questions about St Louis Calvary I will be happy to try to answer it. If I don't know, I will try to find the answer for you.

Happy Hunting :)

RE: King's Sec 17, lot 332 @ StL Calavary
Many thanks for supplying the photos. I corrected Hanorah's name & will insert the section & lot numbers when I have a bit more time. These were just data entries when I requested the transfer. You & I have turned them into a family. Nice.

RE: Jenkins @ StL Calvary
Thanks Kathie for taking the time and trouble to photograph and post the photo. It appears from the photo that the cross is for James (not James A.) and Catherine. Were the other names and dates also on the cross? ... as I was really interested in seeing James A.'s date of birth since I don't know it. Thanks,
- Dave
